battery light is usually an issue with the alternator, and if it isn't charging the battery, you will have issue like your experiencing. Put a voltmeter across the battery terminals when the engine is off, what is the voltage, over 12V? Start the LC and measure the voltage, is it 14V?

Might be a wiring issue then. Check your battery cables and wiring to the alternator and starter for crack and corrosion. The mechanic should have inspected that.
